Pulsing Three-Legged Dog
- From downward facing dog, lift your left leg.
- Stack left hip over right, and keep the left leg extended. Don’t kick your leg back; you want it in line with your torso.
- Use your outer hip muscles to pulse your leg up and down. These are small movements, y’all!
- Pulse 10-20 times, then repeat with the right leg raised.
Alternative: Do this from hands and knees.
Badass challenge: Do this from plank pose!
